There they go again ...


On Monday, current.com published a rather infantile "satire" piece in which Sarah Palin expressed her desire to "deport" singer Christina Aguilera for botching the National Anthem during the Super Bowl last Sunday.  No one who has ever seriously paid attention to the real Sarah Palin would believe for a minute that this over-the-top lampoon was in any way authentic:

Making an appearance on Sean Hannity's radio program on Monday, Palin pointedly criticized Aguilera's gaffe, and called her out for exhibiting 'diva behavior.'

"Quite frankly, Sean, public figures must be held accountable for what they say," explained Palin. "Here's another case of an airhead diva going on TV, running her mouth off, sounding like a fool. She doesn't understand something so basic about America, yet we're supposed to tolerate her diva behavior? Americans can see through that, Sean."

Palin also levied criticism on the Obama administration for allowing "spicy Latin princesses" to do the jobs of American pop divas. "Unemployment is at nine percent, yet we have to suffer through a performance by a foreigner with a poor grasp of the English language? If I were president, I'd deport Ms. Aguilera back to wherever it is she's from and give Amy Smart a call." Aguilera was, in fact, born in New York and grew up in Pennsylvania.

Apparently the folks at US Weekly, who have had a burr under their saddle about Sarah Palin since the 2008 elections, aren't very smart.  In an article that has since been scrubbed from their website, they breathlessly reported the fake interview between Sean Hannity and a "fuming" Sarah Palin as a hot news story.

Apparently Palinioa, just like Bush Derangement Syndrome, has the unintended yet gratifying ability to reduce the IQ of its victims by double-digit increments.

Keep 'em coming, folks.  As a far wiser king once noted, "Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall."

Truth has never interfered ... (Below threshold)
Don L:

Truth has never interfered in the least with leftist propaganda. The real travesty is so many know if and cheer the lies which corrupt the liar more than the target.

Reminder: After the blue dress and the felony of lying under oath was no longer undeniable -Bill Clinton's groupies changed their mantra from "he didn't lie" to "Yeah, he lied, but he's our liar." And today the same crowd is singing "he's our faux messiah."

The reason that it is "beli... (Below threshold)

The reason that it is "believable" is because it is an insult that someone who is supposed to be a professional singer is unable to actually sing the anthem (or any other specific song) as it is supposed to be sung. Similarly, a person hired to introduce the game with a specific song forgets that it is not her "concert".

Oh I have no doubt that some of the lefty loons here will actually say "well it would be something she would say" that is how obsessed they are with Palin. ww

Just another example of that 'multiple layers of fact checking' stuff.

Les Nessman:

If it was just a simple mistake, then roughly half the false, negative stories would be about Dems and half would be about Repubs.

Since the vast majority of these false, negative MSM 'mistakes' are about Repubs, it sure looks like straight-up bias.

It's pretty straightforward... (Below threshold)

It's pretty straightforward, Les. If something potentially damaging or inflammatory about a Democrat or liberal emerges it is fact-checked carefully. If there's smoke, but no fire, the story is lightly covered with a debunking, the opportunity is used to smear the source, which will be called conservative or GOP whether it is or not. If there's fire behind the smoke (John Edwards, anyone?), then the story is simply spiked. That used to work, now the story often creeps out via the net and after a week or two the MSM will lightly touch on it, usually to say how it's not as bad as when some conservative or republican did something similar (yeah, Democrat X was caught in bed with the corpse of a pop star, but Ronald Reagan bad-mouthed the USSR!). When you're talking about a conservative or republican, then no fact-checking is needed, guilty until proven guilty or innocent and even then still guilty. When totally depantsed like in this case and the recent Maddow case (gee that involved Palin, too, almost like there's a theme), the story is basically just disappeared as if it never happened (and caches and screen shots don't exist). This isn't Al Saunders' offense, their playbook is pretty basic and easy to grasp once you know what to look for.

fixer:

You're right for once, littlewillie, this is totally in line with what Sarahcuda would say. Until you read the quotes. Then it becomes obvious that that's not her. The syntax is way too lucid and coherent.

I still promise to donate to her presidential campaign, should it actually come to pass.

Palin/Bachmann 2012!

twolaneflash:

You have to possess a double-digit IQ to have it lowered that much. With liberals, I count IQs in single digits. Sarah turns them to stone: stupid like a rock.

John:

Fixer is priceless, there is example after example of the media misrepresenting Sarah Palin. There is example after example of the media making stuff to paint her as something she ISN'T. People like fixer think we're nuts because we no longer believe what the media tells us and yet Fixer's entire perception of Sarah Palin is built on a stack of lies. Now Fixer, don't get me wrong, I'm not a big Palin fan but this kind of non sense from formerly respected media should put everyone on alert that they might just be being manipulated by the media. If that's how you like to live great have fun in your media created reality, but for me I think I'll pass.
